Photos from the Bluebell Run 2018

It was cold and overcast yesterday, but thankfully dry. Great turnout with 30 bikes assembled at Okeford Fitzpaine Recreation Centre for our annual Bluebell Run which involved a 62 mile round trip down to Lulworth Cove and back, via Delcombe Woods to see the bluebells.

Before setting off, we were looked after with teas, coffee, pain au chocolat, croissants, etc kindly served by my wife Philippa and Marjorie.  I’m somewhat biased as I live in this village but I thought this start venue with its large hard-standing area and refreshment facilities was excellent; I hope others agree.

By the way, interesting route guys!  Somehow you managed to miss out Delcombe Woods…which is where the bluebells are! 🙂 🙂 🙂 .  By the time I got to Lulworth Cove, the run had already been renamed the “Lost in Dorset” Run.

Seriously, a great time was had by all.
